Desperately Seeking Yeast

Itaky as protected area day 17; waiting fr the press conference of the Civil Protection. As days go by we feel more and more this “suspented time” sensation, it seems to last forever and in the meantime you just want this situation to end, just to end! Experts say we are actually living a kind […]

Normality…what a wonderful word ;-)

(Italy as a protected area day 12)
Italy as a protected area day 12. Some people tell that in bad times you should not focus on the things you miss. Personally in a situation like this I simply miss basic and simple ones like walking! Today is the very first Sunday of springtime, very sunny outside. You look out of the window […]

(italy as a protected area day 6)
Italy as protected area day 6. This is the first Sunday of this period of quarantine. Normally you would have woken up later, have a look outside the window to decide if later you would have a walk at the sea shore, do some home cleaning, having a distracted look at the TV running the […]

The sound of silence…

(Italy as a protected area day 4)
In our cities we are totally overwhelmed by noises (cars, people, works…) so walking in the steets, during these “stay at home” days is really unreal. Few people walking only, we can go out only for food shopping, health reasons or going to the work. We keep on repeating “Io sto a casa” with limited […]

Queueing at the supermarket…

(Italy as protected area day 3)

The shops or activities that are not primary (like food or pharmacies) will be closed until 25th March in order to avoid unnecessary […]

The Market

(Italy as protected area, day 2)
Italy as a protected area day 2. Today I have been to the local food market, this is one of the reasons we are permitted to stay outside. We must have a self certification where in case the police stops us we declare what we are doing and they are going to check. We have […]

The Net…

(Italy as a protected area day 1)
Italy as a protected area day 1. As you know Italy must respect a forced quarantine or in law terms we are a “protected area”, We can only move, even in our own city, for specific and primary reasons: work, health ones, our meal shopping in grocieries or serious family matters. Yesterday evening, listening to […]

Magical Sunset ;-)

(summertime is on the way...)
I know, it has been a long time since I wrote the last post ;-(  But I have taken this time to study, take pictures and the most important thing, taking care of my life. And winter time is necessary to recharge the batteries. We have had a real winter with cold temperature but last […]
